Who ever came up with Booze and Desserts together needs a standing ovation. This is a great place, a little... read more

I love the fountain on locust because the atmosphere is unique, vintage hip yet approachable and upbeat. The servers are nice and their drinks and ice cream are fantastic. The food is always delish!

This is going to become a St Louis must!!! Fantastic sandwiches, soups, and salads! Very fun decor. Great servers. Fun experience! Out of town guests loved it!! I know the ice cream is wonderful but we had to save room for our St. LOUIS TOUR.

It was a charming older cafe decorated like an old soda fountain. I think the draw may be the ice cream, but we didn't have any. I liked their "pick 2" option so that you can pick a 1/2 sandwich and a 1/2 salad. I thought our food was good, but nothing amazing. It was a lot like Panera. After... More

A big serving covered with hot fudge and whip cream and tons of coconut! The service was fast and friendly. We sat in one of the booths with the ceiling fans, what... More

Friends had told us about The Fountain, they raved so much we thought this may be a disappointment because they had built it up. They are Right!!. Our server Allie made it a fun trip. Try the different shake flavors and the Cuban Soup was perfect. You will enjoy this place we will be back ---------------

We love ice cream...anytime we go on a trip we like to search for a place to get a treat almost every evening. The fountain seriously has the best ice cream ever. They have such creative blends and fun sundae flavors and even have adult ice cream choices. The building is set up like an old soda shop and has... More

The ice cream concoctions (martinis, drinks, sundaes) were to die for. The full bar service was excellent and served classic craft cocktails in addition to drinks using the ice cream, adult infused toppings. The place is kid friendly and the staff does an excellent job of serving everyone. The food is delicious as well, though limited on selection, it's a... More
